Markley Street Reconstruction Project

Beginning in early 2013 the first phase of the Markley Street Reconstruction project is set to begin. This $21.5 Million first phase will widen and reconstruct Markley Street from Elm Street to Johnson Highway. Another $15 Million will be invested in the second phase, from Main Street to Elm Street. Set to being in late 2014, phase two will include major improvements to the Main Street Bridge over the Stony Creek.

DeKalb Street Two Way Study

In 2010 Norristown completed a study to determine the feasibility of changing DeKalb Street, north of Lafayette Street, from one-way to two-way. The goal of the plan is to create better and more direct access into Norristown’s downtown from the north.

Arts Hill

In 2009, Norristown embarked on an effort to create an arts district and local cultural organization. Since then Norristown Arts Council has been created; the second annual arts festival was held in April of 2011; and a second live theater venue on DeKalb Street will be opening in 2012.
